Celebrity News: Oprah Winfrey Network sued for sexual discrimination, laying off female executive for being pregnant

This is really a shame, after all the years we have known Oprah Winfrey to cater to women on her show, she is now being sued by a female executive.  How is it that Carolyn Hommel was forced to leave just for being pregnant at a network owned by a black woman?  Isn't that how a lot of black women are already mistreated working on the job for some white employers?  Carolyn Hommel was hired in 2010 as senior director of scheduling and acquisitions, according to  The report goes onto to say she was on her way to become a vice president before she became pregnant.    

Sisters, it is already difficult that a lot of us are left alone without a man to help raise our children, but to face sexual discrimination on the job is just too much to endure, especially when the owner of the business is a black woman.   In general, some black women can be hypocritical, they complain about how cold and cruel the black man has been to them, but they do not care about their girlfriends, female relatives, co-workers and employees.  In many cases, there has been many of these same black women whom claim they are for the rights of women, but they will not consider the welfare of other women while catering to many men whom mistreat us, whether they be their sons, husbands, significant other, or associates.  If we could stop the hypocrisy among some women in charge or even in other circumstances, it would make it much easier on women like Carolyn Hommel.   

Celebrity women like Oprah Winfrey should never allow sexual discrimination against her female staff employees.   It's already difficult to be promoted to a higher position on any job as a woman. How could Oprah allegedly allow Carolyn Hommel's pregnancy get in the way of achieving her promotion?  Too many women are struggling to achieve the same type of success like Oprah and pregnancy is never an excuse to lay off any female employee.
